There are stacks upon stacks of self-help books that will promise you love, happiness, and a fabulous life. But how can you pinpoint the exact behaviors that cause you to be miserable in the first place? Sometimes when we're depressed, or just sad or unhappy, our instincts tell us to do the opposite of what we should - such as focusing on the negative, dwelling on what we can't change, isolating ourselves from friends and loved ones, eating junk food, or overindulging in alcohol. Sound familiar?

Un-apologetic and utterly sarcastic

An endeavor towards improvement by means of constant contrasting in all 40 strategies. it is deliberately over-simplified to highlight the universal positions we take in life. It has hit home for me and it deserves further attention, It's so short and to the point I will be revisiting it. Dr. Randy J. Patterson uses a no holds barred and direct narration of his understanding, there is much to learn here.
